Wed Feb 7th - Satan stood up and incited David

Be imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises.—Heb. 6:12.

Although we should avoid comparing ourselves with others, we can benefit by learning from the examples of faithful ones. To illustrate, let us consider Jesus. Even though he was perfect, we can learn from his beautiful qualities and ways. (1 Pet. 2:21) When we do our best to follow his example as closely as we can, we become better servants of Jehovah. In God’s Word, we find many examples of faithful men and women who despite being imperfect are worthy of imitation. Think of King David, whom Jehovah called “a man agreeable to my heart.” (Acts 13:22) Yet, David made some serious mistakes. In spite of that, he is a good example for us. Why? Because he did not try to justify himself. Instead, he accepted the strong counsel he received and was sincerely sorry for what he had done. As a result, Jehovah forgave him.—Ps. 51:3, 4, 10-12. w22.04 13 ¶11-12
Speaking of David's serious mistakes, the first thing that might come to mind is his adulterous tryst with Bathsheba, which led to David's murdering her husband to cover up her pregnancy. Yet, as serious as that was, the nation itself was not directly affected. The same cannot be said about another of David's "serious mistakes", a mistake that resulted in Jehovah unleashing a plague that killed 70,000 of David's countrymen. I am, of course, referring to David's ill-advised census.

Joab tried to dissuade the king from numbering Israel but David prevailed. Why did David do it? 1 Chronicles 21:1 gives us some insight. It says: "Then Satan stood up against Israel and incited David to number Israel." It is not clear to me why taking a census of Israel at that time was wrong. At other times similar censuses were taken. In any case, Satan knew it was wrong and that is why he overreached David and influenced the king to act in a way to incite Jehovah's judgment against Israel. And in time David himself realized his error and confessed: "But David’s heart was struck with remorse after he had numbered the people. David then said to Jehovah: “I have sinned greatly by doing this. And now, Jehovah, please forgive your servant’s error, for I have acted very foolishly.” - 2 Samuel 24:10

Jehovah's response came the next day. The prophet, Gad, presented David with three options, all equally unappealing: Seven years of famine, three months of fleeing before Israel's enemies, or three days of pestilence. David chose the three days, saying: “It is very distressing to me. Let us fall, please, into the hand of Jehovah, for his mercy is great; but do not let me fall into the hand of man.” - 2 Samuel 24:14 The scourage was only halted when David built an altar and sacrificed upon it.

Similarly, Satan has over-reached the leadership of the Watchtower and incited them to promote a very dangerous vaccine. Not so long ago the Watchtower was an outspoken critic of all vaccinations, portraying the procedure as a scheme of the Devil, but with the Covid pandemic, so-called, the Governing Body became zealous promoters of the United Nations, Bill Gates-funded, World Health Organization's universal vaccination program. Here is an excerpt from an article posted on e-watchman back in 2021:
It does not at all seem far-fetched that Satan has incited the Governing Body to order that Jehovah’s Witnesses must be vaccinated in order to set foot in a Kingdom Hall, that is, assuming the pilot project is successful and is fully implemented worldwide. It might seem like the prudent thing to do given that the COVID-19 pestilence has killed hundreds of thousands of people. (In reality, many of the deaths attributed to Covid have been caused by hospitals using deadly treatments and disallowing known remedies.)

But as in the case of David’s disastrous census, which was apparently a numbering of his armies rather than the general population, what right does the Governing Body have to attach any conditions to those who wish to practice what the Bible commands?

The satanic nature of the Watchtower’s mandate should be obvious, in that, it is in complete alliance with the UN’s universal vaccination program, which had been in the works long before the pandemic. Under the guise of obeying Caesar and saving lives, the Watchtower has committed the entire organization to a dangerous, untested, highly experimental procedure that is killing and maiming hundreds of thousands around the world.

Why is this vaccination mandatory? No one can give an answer as to why vaccinated persons need to be protected from those who are unvaccinated. Why must people who have recovered from COVID-19 be vaccinated to protect them from Covid? Why is natural immunity discounted, which has been scientifically proven to be at least a dozen times more powerful than the vaccine? Why are young people and even children and babies being injected with a serum that is far more deadly to them than the virus? No one ever answers these questions. It is just tyranny. Take the jab or else be punished. And the Governing Body is right there with the tyrants.

It is not out of the question that the 70,000 deaths that resulted from David’s folly might have an actual fulfillment among Jehovah’s Witnesses. Of course, it is not going to happen over the course of three days, but no one knows the long-term effects.
While the day's text commends David for not trying to justify himself, can the Governing Body show the same contrition? After all, it is now known that the vaccine is neither safe nor effective. Even with all of the media coverup and tyrannical de-platforming of truth-telling experts, the truth has prevailed. The vaccines do not provide immunity. It is a fact that millions of people who took the vaccines also contracted COVID-19. It is also a fact that vaccinations do not prevent one from being an agent of contagion. Foremost, millions of people worldwide have had adverse reactions, and untold numbers of vaccinated persons have died. Will the Governing Body show the same humility as David and openly confess their sin before God and apologize to Jehovah's Witnesses for ill-advisedly promoting the vaccines and claiming that Jehovah directly provided the Pentagon-designed poison?

It is noteworthy that the three options Jehovah presented to David involved war, famine, and pestilence -- three of the four horsemen of the Apocalypse that are soon to be unleashed. Let he that hath an ear, hear.

Yeah. Woke me up too. As I had said before, I had always assumed that the prophecies that speak of the blood guilt of the leaders of God's people was figurative. Now it has come to light that they are quite literally guilty of murder. Still, that does not mean they cannot avail themselves of God's mercy on an individual basis, the same as David.

What I find strange , If we must all take notice of what the medical people state , why is a doctors examination not considered as a second witness in child sex abuse cases ? When an adult is raped , an examination by a doctor can confirm and be added as evidence . How much more so with a child ?

Awesome AI images, Paul. 👍
AI is becoming more and more WOKE every day...
When I asked AI for a depiction of King David repenting before God in biblical times, this is what it came up with:
_398924b5-e3d2-45eb-a7d0-463d40164298.jpeg
It also took me quite a while to make a proper depiction of a bathing Bathsheba without being flagged for violating their guidelines for being too pornographic...

Anyway, after jumping through a few hoops, I'm satisfied with the end result. ;)

I've never seen that video till now. Very powerful evidence of the GB pushing the jab mandate on JWs as if it was from Jehovah himself. Thankyou for posting it. I was not active with the organization during the pandemic and never realized how much they were pushing the vaccine.

Just a side note, Br King. Since the GB unabashedly admits they do not apologize, then obviously, they aren't going to admit their mistakes.
You surely must have forgotten that little tidbit of information from the Annual Meeting.:ROFLMAO:

Yeah. Woke me up too. As I had said before, I had always assumed that the prophecies that speak of the blood guilt of the leaders of God's people was figurative. Now it has come to light that they are quite literally guilty of murder. Still, that does not mean they cannot avail themselves of God's mercy on an individual basis, the same as David.
On a more serious note, It did wake a lot of us up but, now, a test for each of us remains.
If mercy is deserved, will we be forgiving especially if we have lost a loved one to vaccine injury or have personal ties to a CSA victim?
It would be a hard pill to swallow, for sure!!! Might be worthy of some serious self-examination because we know the direction our personal emotions could lead us.

David was a forgiving man and WT is probably right on this one - it may well have played a role in Jehovah's extension of mercy to David.

I remember there was a guy on Twitter who made his own AI images. They were absolutely nuts & uncensored. I'll admit they made me laugh big time due to the ridiculous nature of those pictures. He was taken down & I do miss is shenanigans from time to time. Here's an idea, have the AI generate the GB & Bethel family getting drunk while partying like a bunch of chimpanzees doped on crystal meth & they are in their underwear. I bet such an image will be useful down the road.

Personally I would prefer to urinate all over their graves. This one will be a challenge for me. Added to all the other challenges upcoming, I likely have a snowball's chance in Hell to see everyone in the New System so I am going to really be asking Jehovah and Jesus for some big time mercy myself. Stay tuned! The future is nigh.
